During his own lifetime, Marc Chagall became a living legend -- the grand old man of French painting.Born in the Jewish ghetto in provincial Russia, he broke away from the restrictions of poverty and religious constraints to become swept up in the political and artistic maelstrom of the Russian Revolution before moving to Paris, at that time the artistic capital of Europe.Cubism, Expressionism, Surrealism --Chagall learned from all of these movements and rubbed shoulders with many of the great painters and poets of the century, but he stayed very much his own man and developed a unique style which was his hallmark through the years.His themes remained the same -- Russian village life, lovers in surrealistic landscapes of flowers and fantasies, stories from the Bible -- the excitement and the sorrow of life itself.

This important film was completed shortly before Chagall's death and is the last film made about this great artist during his lifetime.
